If you love ginger, this one's for you, especially if you use the greater amount. Ingredient tip: Look for high-fiber coconut flour in the baking section of your natural market.

To make the crust gluten free, use an all-purpose gluten free flour blend, such as Bob's Red Mill's Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

For Yogurt Cream and Citrus Glaze recipes, see: Build a better tart.

  1. In a food processor, combine sugar, flours, grated coconut, coconut oil, and salt. Process 15—20 seconds, until mixture looks like wet sand. While machine is running, add water and lemon juice; process until mixture forms a ball. Press into individual tartlet shells, or a 9-inch tart or springform pan and 1 inch up the sides. (If making ahead, wrap in foil and freeze.)
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Place tart pan(s) on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and prick with a fork. Bake 5—10 more minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a rack.
  3. When cool, remove pan sides and place on a serving plate. Mix Yogurt Cream with ginger; spread on crust. Arrange mango, pineapple, and kiwi in alternating rings. Brush with glaze. Garnish and serve.
